This is a plot I never dreamed possible.. Oh wait..it's older than those trees, but still a fun movie anyway and now I'm going to sing the Monty Python's Lumberjack song and press wild flowers then dress in women's clothing!
Enjoy..It's a lot of fun!
I only wonder why the only keyword is "true".. You mean this is a true life adventure story? Why of course!

What a delight that was!
This High Sierra logging/timber-type western is really good. It started off with a bang right away, and made me chuckle a few times. The story begins and moves quickly and it kept my interest, even though I've seen this film in a dozen or more interpretations already.
It has the basic timberland plot... shady RE developers try and cheat a young widow out of her land and the hero cowboy from her ranch saves the day kind of thing.
There was actually NO romantic overture to this film, unless you count the brief bits of comic relief between two old codger side-kicks.
It's probably only a 3 star movie, but I really enjoyed it, so I am going to give it one extra for just being a plain old good movie.
